Frieda Hughes's fables cast light on two worlds, giving a mythic dimension to contemporary life - depicting with an artist's keen eye the particular nature of beast, fish and fowl. Strange creatures, fabled beings and inner voices come to life in startling poems set both in city streets and hospitals as well as in psychic landscapes and reinvented tales. Stonepicker is Frieda Hughes's second collection, now out of print in this edition but all the poems are included in Out of the Ashes (Bloodaxe Books, 2018).

MEDIA REVIEWS
An accomplished painter, she brings to her poetry the same landscape of contrasts, in her vivid descriptions of light and dark, struggle and release, the cleansing properties of fire. She is a courageous poet with a rich palette. -- Maura Dooley & Jamie McKendrick * PBS Bulletin *
Her book is about aloneness, about cathartic confrontation and rebirth...The position of the confessional voice in this poetry is quite deceptive - the "I" can be both public and personal. Such poems outflank the obvious. This is poetry come out of siege. -- John Kinsella * Observer [on Wooroloo] *
